Lay Me Down

Remember me beneath autumn leaves,

As the wind changes and skies grow dark.

The world may tilt between a dark star,

But I will still burn bright with the memory of you.

Touch my lips with a gentle reminder of summer to come,

That I may help these trees lay up for winter.

For frost has begun its sneaking dance,

And I will soon lay down with this cool grass.

I will find you once the ice has gone,

And mayhap I can again adorn your hair in flowers.
